Pillars of the Earth (The Mini-Series)
My husband and I are currently watching Pillars of the Earth, the mini-series and we're absolutely riveted. It's just fabulous and I don't want it to end! It's taking us a while though to get through the eight hour movie because we want to watch it together and real life such as family, travel and work has interfered sometimes. I remember being engrossed by the almost 1,000 page book by Ken Follett when I read it in 1996. Yes, I actually recall the year I read this novel because trust me...it's that kind of book. Now that we're watching the TV movie, I realize I don't remember much from the book so it's hard to compare but the movie is definitely good! Great casting, acting, script and beautiful costumes and locations. This is the television event of the year and you must catch it if you can. The DVD version will be released on November 23rd. Check out the trailer below.
